Once my flash drive was infected by some virus that produced the shortcuts for directories. After this infection the device could not be connected to any system and OS. I tried it on Ubuntu and found some signs of detection.
When I insert the drive in the USB port.
lsusb lists down the device as
Bus 002 Device 121: ID 0951:1642 Kingston Technology DT101 G2
fdisk -l and
blkid does not list this device.
My question is that:
lsusbdetects my device, is this the sign that my device is physically save?
fdiskdoes not list it as storage device, is that the sign that virus changed the status/type of my device to some non-storage device? I do not know if this thought makes any sense.
- Can the device be repaired any way?
